John Kashdan

John Kashdan (1917-2001) was a British painter and printmaker of Russian extraction who studied at the Royal Academy Schools and later exhibited in London and America before withdrawing from exhibiting around 1950 to focus on his teaching career. In 1989, a retrospective exhibition of his paintings and monotypes from 1940 to 1955 at England & Co led to the British Museum's Department of Prints and Drawings acquiring a substantial collection of his work from the gallery. Some of these works were later included in the major exhibition (and book), Avant-Garde British Printmaking 1914-1960, at the British Museum in 1990. In 1991, Kashdan held a second exhibition at England & Co of monotypes produced from 1941 to1991.

We are currently in the process of preparing a selection and archive of additional works by John Kashdan to be added to these pages. This will include paintings and a group of his innovative monotypes.
